Monthly Summary: Pastoral Council held their monthly meeting on July 10th. This summer’s first Mystery Tour went to Our Lady of Lebanon Shrine in North Jackson, Ohio. The Wednesday Bible Study continues to be well received and will finish in August. Registration for Parish Life Night (PLN) is now open on ParishSOFT. Teen Drop-In nights continue on the second Saturday of each month after the 4:30 Mass. Teens do not need to be members of the parish to attend. Fr.

Donut Sunday was very well attended and will continue on the 2nd Sunday of every month. The Parish Strategic Planning Committee continues to meet and is in the process of implementing suggestions from the parish survey.
